Greece, the Danes, the United States. Most services did because its hard to read those little serial numbers quickly when the rifles are on a rack. The markings vary on who used them. The big tell for the greeks is the last four on the right side of the butt stock and parallel to the butt plate. The danes stamped the full S/N long ways by the rear sling swivel on the bottom (and there is usually a unit disk on the bottom of the grip as well as a sticker in the op-rod channel). The U.S. stamped and painted numbers in various places.

Hope this helps

Very well could be last 4 digets of serial number. Stock probably doesnt belong to the rifle so it doesnt match. A mismatched stock cant tell you anything about the history of your rifle

The detective wins. The only time Danish numbers stamped on the stock is cool is if the receiver has the coinciding numbers.
I believe AA is Augusta Arsenal. Triple proofed? Looks quadruple.

Thanks Jerryjeff. Yep Augusta Arsenal. I think your talking about the dark circle below the trigger housing. For the life of me you cant see a P. I've tried CSI alternate light sources and still can't tell.
